Hanoi is hosting a series of cultural activities on February 9, the fifth day of 2019 Lunar New Year, to mark the 230th anniversary of the Ngoc Hoi – Dong Da victory against the Chinese Qing invaders in Dong Da Mound.

 The festival was organized with ceremonial rituals, and a festive drum performance reproducing the image of Emperor Quang Trung, to help visitors and people understand the nation’s fight against foreign invaders.

In the early spring of 1789, Nguyen Hue, who was later proclaimed Emperor Quang Trung, led his troops in the fight against the invasion of the Qing dinasty, during which over 20,000 Qing troops were defeated, liberating the imperial city of Thang Long and regaining national independence and freedom. 

Since then, the 5th day of the first lunar month has become the traditional day. 
The victory  has also gone down in Vietnamese history as an immortal and epic struggle for national construction and defense, said Nguyen Duc Chung, chairman of the Hanoi People’s Committee at the ceremony. 

The festival was held to promote the country’s cultural values and educate young generations about the tradition of patriotism and national pride.

On December 24, 2018, Dong Da Mound was recognized as special national special relic site by Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc, given the exceptional historical and cultural characteristics of the location.
